Catching the 9:45am bus to the airport seemed like an impossible task after coming home around 7am.  i had to leave the house by 9am, and i think i was still toxicated while going to the bus station.  After one hour bus ride to the airport and three hr plane ride, i finally arrived in Wroclaw, Poland.  While I didn't know much about the country, for some strange reason, i really wanted to come here.  I should've made the trip when i was in Prague, but i decided not to then, and i've been regreting the decision ever since.  Thus, i made the longest detour of my trip.

When i first arrived in Wroclaw, I instantly got the feeling of communist state here.  Of course communism no longer exist in Poland but the cold weather, empty streets, architectures, faces of the people, and everything about the city gave me a strong impression of socialist culture.  Having said that, it was also difficult to ignore the charming aspect of the city.  Without contradicting myself, the city had some of the most charming architectures, displaying fairytale like facades along with Christmas decorations all over the city.  Polish can look bit intimidating but when approached, most were very pleasant to talk to and helpful.  And to all the guys reading this, women here are absolutely gorgeous.  Perhaps that alone is worth a visit to Poland for many of you guys.  :)

While walking around the main square, i couldn't believe my eyes when i saw a sign that read "MaRu".  I've been craving mom's cooking for a while and to find a Korean rest. was just what i needed.  So I rushed inside and ordered several dishes.  The food was average but it was still better than the kebabs that i've been having.  I was told that the LG factory is in Wroclaw, therefore, many Korean restaurants can be found around the city. 

Other than the Koreans working here, most of the residents are students attending University of Wroclaw.  As a result, you can easily find young, hip bar/clubs and drinks are relatively cheap.  Another reason for many of you guys to come and visit...  cheap drinks and pretty girls, not a bad combination, right?  

Good times in Wroclaw but it was bit dead.  I was in the 6 bed room but i was the only one staying.  Met few people in the hostel but i wanted to move along to Krakow where I heard it's turning into new Prague.  So, i packed up my bags, gave my farewell to the city and headed over to the train station.
